Welcome to the Transportation Institute in the School of Business and Economics at North Carolina A&T State University. The Transportation Institute is an interdisciplinary research, training, and technology transfer unit that draws faculty, staff, and students from various departments within the School of Business and Economics, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering, and throughout the entire University.
Established in 1970, the Transportation Institute has been a leader in transportation-related research, education, and technology transfer. Institute activities are intended to enhance student learning through education experiences in transportation, research, internships, professional meetings, scholarships and stipends. The institute also expands faculty research opportunities which provide funded release time, conference travel, and summer employment.
The mission of the Transportation Institute is to serve as a national, regional and local clearinghouse for transportation education, research and outreach; offering seminars, workshops, lectures, publications, and other information for public and private transportation practitioners, decision-makers and the general public.
The Institute educates students and professionals from diverse populations to provide qualified transportation professions in the workforce. The programs and activities conducted by the Institute are designed to provide ongoing initiatives in the areas of education, research, and workforce development. The Institute is a multidisciplinary unit that is dedicated to:
- Enhancing student learning and faculty development through educational experiences in transportation, research, internships, professional meetings, scholarships and stipends.
- Expanding faculty research opportunities through funded release time, conference travel and summer employment.
- Serving as a regional resource.
- Implementing programs that create an environment which fosters learning for the 21st century.
